There is one assisted living facility in the community to cater to this large senior population, and another four in the nearby communities of Portsmouth, New Boston and Minford. The facilities are monitored and licensed by the Ohio Department of Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Wheelersburg

  • Wheelersburg has around 160 days of sunshine each year, around 45 less than the national average, which may be challenging for seniors who enjoy spending time in the sun. In July the average high temperature is 86 degrees Fahrenheit and in January the average low is 21 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • The Sperling cost of living index lists Wheelersburg's cost of living at 81.2, compared to the national average of 100, making it a very inexpensive place to live.
